Nate is very excited to continue combining his advanced orthopedic skills with RehabAuthority’s scientifically proven method in the treatment of back and neck rehabilitation to help patients “feel good again.” When Nate is not in the clinic treating patients, he is likely to be hiking. He has currently “bagged” about twelve peaks in the surrounding area of 12,000 ft. or higher. He is also an avid cyclist and trail runner. When he has some quiet time, he likes to fiddle around on the violin and piano.

This isn’t the first time an embarrassing candidate has sneaked onto a ballot. We remember the Republican loser in the Democratic-heavy 9th Congressional District who warned that frigid temperatures and tornadoes reflected God’s disdain for liberal Illinois politics. We’ve got other such crazy stories. There also have been smart, responsible Republicans who have run in Democratic districts and got creamed. Hoo boy, we have more respect for them than ever.
Because we offer individualized exercise programs, a comfortable & caring atmosphere, one on one patient focused sessions, free 15-minute consultations, 45-minute treatment sessions, private treatment rooms, a full fitness facility and a one-month free membership to MedX Fitness Facility upon discharge from physical therapy to help patient transition to an independent exercise program.
Jones repeatedly maintained that his IQ was beyond measure and on par with the Wright brothers and Dr Albert Einstein. He claimed to have read his father's entire medical library, at least twice, before age 12, and every book in the Seminole Public Library, by age 14. With the desire to conquer the world, Arthur left school in the ninth grade and stated,
Nobody else ran as a Republican in the primary because politics is a results-oriented business and the chance of a Republican winning are slim. The boundaries were drawn by Democrats to elect a Democrat. Rep. Dan Lipinski, the incumbent, will face Marie Newman in the Democratic primary, and one of those two will win on Nov. 6. There are other Democratic strongholds in the Chicago area featuring a lone Republican. It can be a Maytag repairman-like assignment.
Over and over, independent research published in peer-reviewed health and fitness journals prove that MedX technology makes meaningful differences in the lives of people who suffer from spine-related pain issues. Even one Lumbar Extension training session every week is enough to produce measurable gains in strength and reductions in low back pain, according to an article published in the journal, Ergonomics.

MedX is the brain child of legendary fitness visionary Arthur Jones, who founded the Nautilus line of equipment that we already carry in Vertex Fitness. In 1986, he founded MedX as a way to expand on his work testing human strength, endurance and range of motion. In conjunction with the independent research teams at the University of Florida, MedX created their medical Lumbar Extension machine, which has been used by thousands to reduce back pain and increase function.
Jones won the party's nomination in March when he ran unopposed for an open seat in Illinois' Third Congressional District. The Republican Party failed to put up a candidate to run against Jones, believing the heavily Democratic district to be unwinnable. Jones will be facing incumbent Representative Dan Lipinksi in the general election this fall.

While Jones claims not to be a current Nazi, his racist bona fides are hardly in question. His campaign website, which hasn’t been updated since his 2015 run and which we’re not going to bother linking to, has a section that questions the Holocaust, referring to it in sneer quotes and as a “racket.” (Separately, it refers to the Confederate flag as “a symbol of White pride and White resistance.”) According to the Anti Defamation League, Jones is the founder and possibly sole member, besides his wife, of the “America First Committee,” which has operated as part of a racist alliance called the Nationalist Front. The last time I saw him speak was in Pikeville, KY, at a Nationalist Front conference where he fulminated about Jews, gay people, and pretty much every other subject you’d expect, at startling volumes and for a truly astounding length of time.

Additional publications included the results of Jones's studies on the differing responses of muscular structures exposed to varying amounts of exercise throughout limited and unlimited range of motion. Jones labeled these responses as type S response for specific and type G for general. He was among the first researchers to experiment with exclusively eccentric training on test subjects and among the first to suggest the superiority and importance of eccentric training for strength. He was the inventor of infimetric and akinetic exercise equipment. He was the first exercise machine designer to utilize cams, as opposed to pulleys, in exercise machines, making possible for the first time resistance that varied along the force curves generated by human muscular structures[citation needed].

There has been talk lately about the utilization of ride share apps such as Lyft and Uber. It is the opinion of Comp-X as well as colleagues in risk management and the legal community that these programs should be avoided at all costs. Although these apps have many short term advantages, they pose a risk to both the insurance carrier and the claimant. Below are […]
Following a full musculoskeletal assessment the physiotherapist will recommend an isometric spinal strength test, if appropriate. The spinal strength test involves being seated in the medical lumbar machine and having the lower half of your body immobilised by a pelvic and leg restraint mechanism. Restraining your lower body is one of the keys to the effectiveness of isolating the lumbar extensors so that they can be accurately strength tested and exercised.

The MedX lumbar extension machine provides functional testing and rehabilitation of the lumbar spine. A unique method of stabilizing the pelvis, providing true isolation of the deep muscles of the lumbar spine(erector spinae and multifidus).

A strong spine provides a stable foundation Spinal Rehabilitation that permits the right amount of space between the vertebrae. Injury, degeneration, weakness and poor posture all contribute to back pain and neck problems. To provide lasting relief from chronic neck and back pain, the structures of the spine must be reconditioned; Med-X physical therapy in Lakewood accomplishes this goal with isolated strengthening exercises.
During that time, whores, gunfighters, thieves and general riff-raff of every sort migrated to Seminole. The jail could not hope to hold them, so they were chained like animals to pieces of pipe driven into the ground. Everyone with common sense carried a gun and they were often used. My father owned a double-barrel, ten-gauge shotgun pistol the Chief of Police had taken from a hoodlum to give to him. In my early teens, the same Chief of Police called me to his office to issue me a permit to carry a concealed weapon. He said, 'I know you have a pistol. I know you need it. and in the likely event you have to use it, it will be better if it's legal.'

Arthur Jones, a former leader of the American Nazi Party, ran uncontested to be the Republican candidate in the Chicago-area district. His campaign website includes a section titled "Holocaust?" Jones has been involved with anti-Semitic and racist groups since the 1970s, according to the Anti-Defamation League, though he told CNN's Alisyn Camerota earlier this year that he is no longer formally involved with the Nazi party.
"I've been broke more times than I care to count and I still made the Forbes Fortune list of the 400 richest by the mid-1980s. When I sold Nautilus Sports/Medical Industries in 1986, I owned a large farm located north of Ocala, Florida. The 350 acres of prime real estate housed the largest privately owned airport. including three Boeing 707 airliners and the largest exclusively owned collection of exotic wild animals. My menagerie consisted of 100 African Elephants, 4,000 crocodilians, three albino rhinos and Micky, my 400 pound pet gorilla."

Peary Rader, founder and publisher of IronMan, told me of a phenomenon reported by his readers: Upon receiving the magazine, subscribers would read the Nautilus advertisements first! They found more information in Arthur's advertisements than in the magazine articles.

No Amnesty for Illegal Aliens: Don’t believe the Liberal media lies that there are 11 million illegal aliens in this country. They have been using that number for at least 10 years. The real number of illegal aliens is 20-30 million. And, they are costing us billions of dollars each year in free health care, subsidized housing, free education for their children; and spreading diseases and violent crime across the country.
